Card Making Tutorials & Kits
Meet the Maker's Membership - A monthly crafting kit for paper crafters
Tired of coming up with your own designs and measurements for handmade cards?
We've been there. Imagine this: you're scrolling through Pinterest when you see a gorgeous handmade card that you want to make. You click on the link to get the tutorial but you're directed to a random webpage instead. This just leads to more frustration as you go onto to other resources to find something to spark your creativity.
Let's stop the frustration.
WHEN YOU JOIN THE MAKER'S MEMBERSHIP:
WHAT YOU'LL RECEIVE EACH MONTH
An exclusive card kit

Q. What are the minimum sales requirements?A. You only need to submit 300 CSV (Commissionable Sales Volume) in sales per quarter. That is less than an average Stampin’ Up! workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still receive your 20 percent discount and commission (or 25 percent if you become a bronze elite title or above).
Q. What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?A. Stampin’ Up! supports all demonstrators, no matter their goals or the level at which they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops, you can simply place your own orders and/or collect orders from family and friends to equal the quarterly sales minimum.
Q. Can I be my own host?A. Yes, you can be your own host anytime you want. Invite your family and friends into your home and have a workshop. You will be the host, receiving the Stampin’ Rewards, as well as the demonstrator, receiving your instant income and commission.
Q. How much does it cost to get started as a demonstrator?A. The Starter Kit is only $99 USD and is fully customizable. You choose up to $125 USD worth of any current Stampin’ Up! products, and you will also receive a business supplies pack containing materials you need to run your business (valued at least $35 USD).
Q. How can I make money as a demonstrator?A. You can earn money in three ways: instant or deferred income (20 or 25 percent of each order), monthly volume rebates (4-13 percent of total monthly sales), and monthly team commissions (1–6.5 percent of your recruits’ sales).
Q. Do I have to recruit other demonstrators?A. No. If you were to recruit demonstrators, you would be paid team commissions on your team’s sales, but this is a perk, not a requirement.
Q. Where will I get project ideas for my workshops? What kind of training can I expect?A. Stampin’ Up! provides dozens of training resources filled with project ideas and tips to help you run every aspect of your business, including a quarterly publication called Stampin’ Success, Demonstrator Support agents, a demonstrator-only website, and annual and seasonal catalogs.
Q. Is Stampin’ Up! a well-known, respected company?A. Since 1988, Stampin’ Up! has been selling stamps and papercrafting supplies. In that time, not only have we won industry awards and accolades, but also the loyalty and admiration of demonstrators and customers alike. And that is a trend that we work hard to maintain. You can rest assured that the reputation of Stampin’ Up! will only continue to improve!
Q. What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalized if I quit?A. You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop placing orders. However, there are many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator. If you have any questions about Stampin’ Up! or becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, please contact your demonstrator.
Do I need prior crafting experience?The Maker's Membership is designed for someone that has basic crafting supplies like a trimmer, die cutting machine, or inks. We will share a list of supplies you will need for that month's kit. If you are missing the supplies, you're more than welcome to order them through us. All crafting techniques are shared in the tutorial videos.
What if I already have some of the products?That's great! We recognize that you may have some of the products already. We are adding to your list of consumable product, meaning you will likely go through the products as you create more crafting projects. At this time, we do not offer the option to substitute products in the kit.
When should I expect my first card kit?Your first card kit will be sent out on the 25th of every month.
Is this membership open to those outside of the United States?Unfortunately, we are not able to provide products to customers outside of the United States. Please be on the lookout in the future for a new membership tier where you can exclusively download the tutorial and create the projects using your own supplies.
What is your refund policy?At this time we are not able to offer refunds. If you would like to pause or skip your membership for the month, please let us know and we can temporarily suspend you membership.
